just a peek into my heart. Barbara is a talented Photographer and is a sweet friend of mine in the blogworld. Thank you, Barbara, for thinking of me when you picked out friends to join the game. Here are my answers to the questions.
Where Were You Born?
I was born and raised in a town in Northern California. I was the youngest of five children, and loved my parents dearly.
Were You Named After Someone?
I actually wasn't named after anyone. My real name is Sheryl, and I guess that was a favorite of my mom's at the time.
If You Have Any Children, How Many?
I have 3 children. You all know Nel and Jess (Danelle and Jessica). My son is the youngest, and they are the loves of my life.
How Many Pets Do You Have?
I've had dogs my whole life, but at the time, I don't have any pets. I do want to get two dogs if we move to the country, so they can roam around and have the freedom that dogs love.
What Was Your Worst Injury?
I have been blessed with my health and have not had serious injuries. When I was a teenager, I was on a baseball team, and it had just rained and the grounds were muddy. A fly ball flew in the outfield, bounced off the ground, and Smack hit me right in the nose and fractured it. After that, I didn't care for baseball much.
Do You Have Any Special Talents?
I love Photography, and would like to think that some of my pictures turned out very nice. This is one of the first pictures I took that made me realize how much I love taking pictures.
What Is Your Favorite Thing To Bake?
Brownies. I have a thing for fudge brownies.
What Is Your Favorite Fast Food?
I don't eat much fast food really, but every now and then I will treat myself to an InNOut Burger.
What Is The First Thing You Notice About People?
Honestly, their general appearance. I am drawn to the eyes, and if they have a nice smile, all the better. I notice their outward beauty first, but only appreciate them if they have the same beauty inside. That outweighs all of their physical looks.
When Was The Last Time You Cried?
I cry all the time - when I'm happy, when I'm sad, when I'm thrilled. My mom was a crier, and I think she passed that on to me haha.
Do You Have Any Current Worries?
Life is very good for me right now. I have an abundance of blessings, and I believe that good things are coming my way.

Would You Like To Be A Pirate?
No, but Pirates of the Caribbean is a favorite ride of mine.

Why Do You Blog?
I wanted a place to share with my daughters all the things we love. I wanted to share projects, pictures, and happenings of every day life. I wanted to bring a bit of sunshine to those who may be struggling with something in their life. What I found out is that I have learned from and have been inspired by my blog sisters as well.
What Is The Least Favorite Thing About Myself?
I'm really happy with the whole package. Every individual is unique and special in their own way.

Photography. I love taking pictures, and I'm still learning, but I don't want to ever forget that there will be times when I take a unique and special picture, but it is God's amazing world that allows me to do so.
What Do You Look For In A Friend?
Loyalty, sincerity, kindness, love.
This is not my picture.
Name Something That You Have Done That You Never Expected To Do?
Climbed the top of Horsetail Falls, which is about 8,000 ft. in elevation. I know it's not Mt. Shasta, but it was difficult for me to do, as I'm not typically a climber.
What Are Your Favorite Things To Do?
Photography, Gardening, Home Decorating, Blogging, Being with my family, Writing short stories.
Any Pet Peeves?
